My thunderstorm confession.

My home HAS to be clean, a meal has to be prepared, I carry a lighter at all times and at least one candle must be ready to light in each room during an evening thunderstorm.

Anyone else do this?

And this really is a wonderful thunderstorm tonight. Heavy rain and lots of lightning. I am just sitting here enjoying the light show outside my front door.

House clean of obstructions and we have an emergency kit, with a flash light ready. Lighters and candles, check. Stash of food, check. Water. Check. I also live in Missouri where tornados like to frequent. So no, you're not alone.

I love thunderstorms!! Especially at night. I'm not prepared as that but the second it starts storming I plug my phone it to charge. So that way I will automatically have a flash light so I can get the candles lit

 Lucky! I wish we had some thunderstorms like that! I love listening to them and then watching the lightening as well!

I a flashlight in designated spots or carry one and have a plan for a simple meal in the back of my mind in case the lights go out. If I am cooking something that takes awhile and its supposed to be a big storm I want it done before its supposed to hit. Thats about it.
